Accel Lifestyle & WJAR's Studio 10 Teams Up with the Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Accel Lifestyle - known for making comfortable, antibacterial, anti-stink, and environmentally conscious athleticwear - is hoping to help provide some comfort to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
For the month of October, Accel Lifestyle will be donating 15% of sales from its limited release “Accelerate the Cure” antibacterial tanks and tees to The Gloria Gemma Cancer Resource Foundation. The funds will help fund the Comfort Care Bags the Foundation distributes to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
“As a native Rhode Islander, I am honored to partner with the Gloria Gemma Foundation and help raise money for the Comfort Care Bags that are given to newly diagnosed women,” said Accel Lifestyle Founder and CEO Megan Eddings.
“I chose to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month because most of us have loved ones who have been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. Two of my aunts have been diagnosed with breast cancer, I have multiple friends who were diagnosed in their 30s and I currently have friends who are currently going through treatment,” said Eddings.
“Accelerate The Cure” tees and tanks will be sold online at accellifestyle.com. They will also be available at Gloria Gemma's Celebration of Life Festival, on Saturday, October 5th and at the Gloria Gemma 5K on Sunday, October 6th during Flames of Hope Weekend.
